    What DVD player has DVI-D out? Describe your cabling. Give model numbers for DVD player and LCD Monitor.

    First set player to 480p. HDCP may be limiting higher resolutions.

    The LG LST-3510A(which I have) has DVI output but you're correct EdDV because of HDCP DVD playback it's limited to 480p, that may very well be the OPs problem.

    Samsung DVD-HD931 is the player I want to use and the monitor is 17" sp7106. (sold under LG and Staples and a variety of others)

    See this review.

    Product summary
    The good:
    Excellent performance via DVI; converts DVD resolutions to 1080i and 720p; sleek styling; relatively inexpensive.

    The bad:
    No DVI aspect-ratio control; DVI jack won't work with non-HDCP displays.

    The bottom line:
    Great video and high style make this DVI deck shine, but make sure you have a compatible TV.

    The 1280x1024 SP7106 doesn't seem to have HDCP. At least not in the listed specs.

    So you should try 720x480p and adjust aspect ratio with custom H&V size presets.
